Imax March 22 announced it would extend the current theatrical run of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi thriller Tenet until March 30, following 3D screen debuts in New York and Los Angeles with more than 30 sold out shows.
Shot using a mixture of Imax and 70mm film, Tenet debuted on four Imax screens New York on March 12 and another eight screens in Los Angeles on March 19 — pushing the film’s total Imax gross to $42.2 million since its initial release in August 2020.
The extended run includes the exclusive 70mm presentation at AMC Lincoln Square and at AMC Universal City, as well as its “Imax with Laser” presentation across locations in New York and Los Angeles until March 30.
Since last weekend, Tenet has sold out Imax screenings at five of eight Southern California locations on both Friday and Saturday night prime performances, including AMC Century City, Burbank, Universal City, Norwalk, and Ontario Mills. Both New York and Los Angeles theaters currently are limited to 25% capacity.
